Golden Globes 2012: Nominees Before They Were Stars (PHOTOS)

The 69th annual Golden Globes will be held Jan. 15 and the nominees are busy getting ready to walk the red carpet and prepping their acceptance speeches should they be lucky enough to win an award.

We'll be seeing lots of stars as Hollywood's A-List gathers together this awards season, but let's not forget that these actors and actresses had lives long before they made it in Tinseltown.

Snakkle.com has uncovered photos of some Golden Globe nominees from before they were famous, including a photo of "Parks and Recreation" star Amy Poehler as a high school junior in Massachusetts and "Moneyball" star William Bradley Pitt -- he's just Brad Pitt to us now -- as an eighth grade student in Missouri.

Check out the photos of Amy and Brad below. and see the entire gallery of Golden Globe stars at Snakkle.com.
